    Hello, everyone!

    Do you know other games that are like the Borderlands series? I'd like to play more games like it before Borderlands 3 is released. I'm finishing my backlogs in the previous games right now. But I want to play other games that are similar to it that are from other publishers or outside this franchise.

    I hope you have some recommendations! :D

    Thanks!

    I am not sure if there is plot by plot comparison with any other game. Overwatch may come close but not even close in terms of the way it was created. So I don't think there are any who are sort of like clones of those games.

    Dead island games are fairly similar. I'm not aware of anything else.

    Yeah the Dead Island games are kind of the same if you are going for the gore and theme but doesn't really quite cut it when it comes to anything else. There are probably some lesser known ones though that are escaping me.

    The Borderlands series is a somewhat unique series. There are different elements such as the open-world shooter mechanic that other games such as Grand Theft Auto possess but GTA is not as restricted in terms of things to do. Then there is the fixed class mechanic which games like overwatch possess but Overwatch isn't an open-world game. The closest thing to Borderlands overall is Fortnite but there is no building mechanic in Borderlands.

    Cool. I would take note of these suggestions when I have time to play games in the future.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I respect that Borderlands is a unique game and we can only see some similarity with some games. I’ll try some of your suggestions.

    Do you think Left for dead is somehow similar to Borderlands?

    O rly?
    Dead Island is a co-op game with multiple different characters, like Borderlands. It also has a loot based weapon system, with different colored weapons based on quality, like Borderlands.
    Maps are quite similar to Borderlands as well. Single player has the player running alone without any ai help, just like Borderlands.

    Not really, imo. Both games have 4 character co-op, and that's about it.

    I agree, there aren't any significant similarities.

    I will check out this Dead Island title because it is the first I am hearing of this title. I just want to know a couple things like - Are the character classes gender-based like Borderlands and do those classes in Dead Island allow for multiple playstyles within any one class like Borderlands does?

    Well yes, there are different characters that specialize in different weapons. For example, Xian - a female, is a sharp (cutting) weapons expert, Logan - a male, specializes in throwing weapons, like throwing knives and cleavers etc. Each and every character can use every weapon in the game, if they are properly leveled, but they are obviously going to be most effective with weapons they specialize in.

    There are rather few but they aren't that vital

    I would say to check out a game called "Dying Light"- which has zombies and a great story as well. You can play as a survivor that discovers secrets and you can fight against scary zombies,hostle gangs and it takes you into a apocalyptic world.

    I have played Dying Light and it is an awesome First Person Horror game with an awesome story but I think the people in this thread are looking for something very similar to Borderlands. Like the Diablo series or something along those lines. Even Fallout 4 shares some similarities with Borderlands and with Mods, Fallout 4 is an absolute dream to play.
